Return of the Light is an initiative from poetry and wellness group Write Minds designed to engage members of the retired community and beyond through a series of writing workshops and an online poetry call out that will culminate in a poetry gallery display and a live, spoken word event at the Main Guard, Clonmel on Friday 26th May at 7.30pm.
Focusing on the belief that writing can be a cathartic and rewarding process open to people of all ages, Return of the Light symbolizes a return of creativity, activity, hope and purpose. Through the uplifting and enjoyable process of writing we can celebrate our artistic and creative abilities, encouraging and inspiring others.
This project is facilitated by Jenny Cox and Eileen Acheson of Write Minds Poetry & Wellness. Eileen Acheson works as an Adlerian Counsellor, group facilitator and writer. Jenny Cox is a freelance writer and project facilitator. Both Eileen and Jenny are published poets and have curated numerous poetry events for the Clonmel Junction Arts Festival and Poetry Day Ireland and the Clonmel Applefest, respectively.
